It’s 25th November today, which means that the next month will be filled with “Christmas Entertaining”. Picnics, cocktails, family bbq’s, get-togethers, work-do’s (arrgh), office parties and more!
So we thought some fun and festive food + drink ideas might be in order…
Betty Crocker’s Easy Fiesta Christmas Tree
Christmas Tree Cheese Board from Cabot Cheese, Vermont
Babybel Cheese Santa from Cute Food for Kids
Edible fruit tree from Ginger & Garlic (scroll down for instructions)
Strawberry Christmas Tree from taste.com.au
Corporate Christmas Party Food from Tracey Lau. No recipes but pictures show Chocolate Dipped Cherries and a Vanilla Bean Bavarois with Raspberry Coulis – gorgeous!
Gingerbread tree – no recipe but I guess you could use any gingerbread biscuit recipe – the idea is lovely:)
Double gingerbread cupcakes from babble.com
Mini snowman shots – eat em’ fast!
No recipe – this is from a wedding blog – but it is apparently chantilly mousse and raspberry sauce. Doesn’t it look Christmas-sy!
Lovely Mini Christmas Vanilla Cupcakes from Once Upon a Plate
Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes from Sweat Peas Kitchen
Refreshing Raspberry Mojito from a la carte kitchen
[b.t.w. we have put a yummy ice republic mojito mix in our "It's a Man's Xmas" gift box - so cool for Christmas or Boxing Day bbq's]
Apple, Ginger and Cranberry Cocktails from the fabulous What Katie Ate
And if you’re looking for some fun entertainment ideas for young and old I love the “Christmas Minute-to-Win-It” ideas in oncloud8′s Not So Silent Night blog post.
Happy Eating & Drinking & Being Merry !!
